Comments: I NEVER write reviews, but Jim and his crew deserve a huge shout out! I had 12 large pine trees, most within 10 feet of my home. The crew did an AMAZING job removing the trees, as well as the cleanup afterward. Jim gave me a very fair and reasonable price. He and his crew were super friendly, polite and very professional. I would HIGHLY recommend this company. These guys were PHENOMENAL!!

Comments: Superb job removing the trees trees close to residences. Some of the trees close to buildings were taken down expertly and safely. The cleanup was thorough and efficient. Jim and his crew showed up when agreed upon and the price was very reasonable for the scope of work done. The climber they brought in to handle the larger trees was obviously experienced. Jim, Ryan, Jeff and Nate at Red Oak Forestry did an excellent job!

Comments: I would highly recommend Red Oak Forestry. They did an amazing job of removing a huge dead tree positioned tightly between 2 houses and close to a powerline with great precision and no problems. They were very professional, prompt and conscientious. They were extremely respectful of my property, cleaned the area up nicely and the price was excellent too. I couldn t be happier with Red Oak Forestry and would recommend them to everyone.

Comments: Jim was very easy to work with. Did the quote when he said he would. Was very flexible on scheduling, as I was coming from out of state. He and his crew arrived when they said they would and completed the job and cleanup quickly. All crew were friendly and professional. Would definitely hire again next time I need trees removed from our cabin.

Comments: Jim and his team are top notch! I am very pleased with the quality of service. He was prompt in reaching me for an estimate, came out to look at the project very promptly - showing up at the time he said he would. He did the work for the estimated price, cleaned up all the brush, hauled everything off. I would definitely recommend Red Oak Forestry!

Comments: The service was awesome !!! Would hire them back in a heart beat

Comments: Jim and his team came out to the site to remove 2 trees, and clear out some bushes. They arrived on time, and it did not take much time for the job to be completed. Because they had heavy trucks, Jim used a pickup to drag the cut trees out to the road, which protected the lawn from being really divoted by the larger vehicles. A few days after the tree removal, they came back to grind down the stumps. Very pleased by the courteous and professional job.

Review Date: 10/12/2018 | Author: Fred M.

Comments: Jim was very prompt. He came to the house within 24 hours of my calling him, to view the job and give me an estimate for removing a very large tree which was near some power lines. When I notified him that we'd accepted his estimate, he came out the next day and removed the tree, leaving the yard spotless with no debris. And his price was 40% lower than the competition.

Review Date: 10/02/2018 | Author: Walter M.

Comments: Liked Jim and crew very much. Very timely compared to competition.

Review Date: 07/22/2018 | Author: Andy T.

Comments: Did a great job on taking down the trees but clean up could have been a lot better. Left behind all the small stuff plus trees they trimmed to get to the trees they were removing. The price was about 30% less than my original quote so overall it has to be considered worth it.

Review Date: 07/15/2018 | Author: Bob M.

Comments: Jim and his people were excellent. Good communication. Came on time. Did an excellent job for us. Would highly recommend!

Review Date: 06/17/2018 | Author: Janice E.

Comments: Jim and his crew were very pleasant and professional. They took down the trees effectively and Jim worked very hard to make sure that my wife and I were satisfied with his work. I would recommend red oaks to anybody looking to have trees taken down.

Review Date: 01/03/2018 | Author: Larry L.

Comments: The guy the company sent does not have workers comp so you need to be sure you get a waiver approved by the State of Maine. The Red Oak company owner does have insurance it just didní cover the guy cutting trees. The company did a good job on this project. I would recommend them to anyone needing this type work.

Review Date: 08/17/2017 | Author: Greg G.

Comments: Quick response time. Did not have to wait weeks for a call back. Polite and professional.

Review Date: 05/13/2016 | Author: Debbie L.

Comments: We had 30 white pines taken down. The tree cutter was amazingly accurate as he laid each tree down precisely where he wanted it. Some were quite close to our house but they all fell away from the house. All trees were removed and most of the debris too. The whole job took several days, as expected. Price for cleanup was very reasonable. We would definitely recommend Red Oak Forestry to others!

Comments: These guys were great! They did an excellent job of taking down dead and dangerous branches and even pointed out others I had not noticed and removed them. They worked with safety in mind and were very careful around wires. They even, on the spur of the moment, helped my neighbor with some branches hanging over her house. I was very happy with their work and their excellent clean-up and would recommend them to everyone.
